Game one of a three game series in LA with the Halos. Sam Deduno (who has has been channeling his inner wiffle ball skills) going up against Joe Blanton, a player who the Twins nearly landed this off-season and has arguably been one the most ineffective pitchers in the AL. No Hamilton in the lineup tonight, and more importantly no Jared Weaver, who no hit the Twins last year at Angels Stadium. Newly called up Doug Bernier will bat in front of Mauer tonight and play short. Keep it real y'all. (Braun comments should be done by first pitch, which is why I opened this early to get it all out of your system.
